More of a recipe than a pattern:
For a 16 oz. takeout cup:
With worsted weight yarn and a G hook, chain 30.  Join into a ring and hdc into each chain.  Increase 2 sts every other round (e.g. inc 1, hdc 12, inc 1, hdc rem), checking the fit every once in a while, working a plain round to tighten it up if necessary. I like a cozy about 6 rounds high.  Stretchy yarns like wool need fewer increase rounds - increasing 2 sts every third round might do the trick.  If you want it to fit lower, start with a shorter foundation chain. 

On the left: Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed cotton in expresso, lemonade, honeydew, and sky.  On the right, unidentified scrap wool in pink, Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in poppy orange. 

I gave one as a small thank-you gift to a barista who makes me awesome dirty chai lattes (chai latte with a shot of espresso).  Barista was delighted, showed it around, people made many positive comments on it.  I need to remember not to downplay my skills - sure, it's something I just whipped up with scrap yarn and an empty takeout cup...but I don't have to say that.  I can just smile and say thank you.

I couldn't resist! I had to make my own!!! Cheesy The red and grey ones are for the "short" cups, and the pink and brown is for the "venti" and "grande" cups. Smiley

Thank you so much for the pattern! This is a great stash buster.

Here's mine! I made it for Kiwi-Chickie in an astrology swap (she's a Taurus). I added a row or two to the top and bottom:
